It also has a 27 inch necklace if you want to wear as a medallion for a regalia outfit. It measures 12.25 inches long by 7.5 inches at its widest point. Some of the beads are iridescent and sparkle in the light while others are solid in color making certain aspects stand out more than others.The medicine wheel provides native people with a means to understand and improve him/herself and to understand and improve his or her world from a spiritual perspective. It provides balance between the 4 seasons, the 4 directions, the 4 elements, the 4 aspects, the 4 stages of life, the 4 sacred medicines and the 4 colors of humans. When one element becomes out of balance it effects the balance of all the elements. This explains the interdependence of each of us to Mother Earth.
